That was beautiful. He was an accomplished person in so many different endeavors. What would are music sound like w/out his work? And the first comment is so true. I bet many here paused when he passed, while the freak show (however sad) was just more white noise.

I don't know, but Primus Sucks!

No love for Mr Weller? THE JAM

Edited so I can mention The Violent Femmes before micah does.

That said, I wouldn't place any of these guys among best trios. However, I got to see Oysterhead up close several times and for the 3 best on their instruments (well, 2 out of 3) it was hard to beat Copeland drumming with Les Claypool on bass and Trey on guitar (in my favorite forum for him).

CREAM, for me of course, hands down...but, have to relate a story re: my kids/friends (ie, guys/gals in their mid 20s). They grew up around me (well, duh, my kids, but their musically inclined kids did as well--not a single one was exposed to any 60s music from THEIR parents...strange, I always thought; nor movies of real significance...? Not patting myself on back, just a bizarre observation), and one day, shortly after OHead made some big noise, a group of them said "oh, Mr. Tell...you've got to listen to them...you love CREAM; you will love them too!"

Just reminded me of that; FWIW, I didn't see it, as they lacked the punch/energy, but tech wise, sorta like Rush, I could see the appeal (SCop is defn a top, top drummer).

EDIT: did you catch that? Used my own real name...funny...

I always liked the Johnny Winter band, I suppose Johnny's band is no longer a three piece as last time I saw them manager Paul Nelson played guitar also.

From the Johnny website:

"Johnny Winter and his band will be the musical guests performing Thursday 1/12 on CBS’s Late Night with David Letterman. Check local listings for times.

Sunday @ the Village Vanguard must be considered an All-Time live performance (6-24-61, yet another amazing performance on June 24th).

What that band could have done if Scott LaFaro didn't die ten days later.

My pleasure it's an amazing album. I never knew Duke could be so modern. At first it didn't make my list then somehow It popped into my head and I had to put it down.

Don't know about "the best", but if you've never checked out THE BAD PLUS do so at your first opportunity.

Jazz trio of Bass, Piano & Drums of the highest quality musicianship. They play many of their own tunes but are best known for serious kick ass covers of rock tunes ranging from Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" to Rush's "Tom Sawyer" and even "Iron Man" by Black Sabbath that will blow you away.

Live they're eve better. Check out "These Are the Vistas" (their debut album), as well as "Give", and anything else you can find. You won't be disappointed.

As far as conventional 3-piece rock bands go I'd give the nod to The Police and Morphine.

Not many of the folks of our "group" give the Police much respect, I've found...but I agree completely. Sting, before he was solo, and SCop, were/are outstanding musical talents, I always thought.

Thx; of course, you well know I place EC + JB + GB as "top five" in their respective instrumental domains, but likewise, I think one can easily argue for Sting + SC as top five...I just can't do it for AS as much as I think he's darn good.

My older kid was a huge Police fan (come to think of it, so was/is kid # 2--even has a tattoo about them...ahem). In any case, it led to my having been exposed to a great deal of live shows, and there's one where the energy and such seems to match CREAM/DEAD/etc style shows (ie, they really seemed to take the world by storm). I know others argue "too pop" or "not punk enough" or whatever, but I think they were at the top of the heap, early 80s/late 70s, easily...

For three musicians it would have to be Cream, The Who and Led Zeppelin with (ZZ Top as honorable mention) I would say The Jimi Hendrix Experience too, except Noel and Mitch (to a degree) were nowhere near the musicians of the Cream, the Who or Zeppelin... (apologies to Robert Plant)
